Spooky Witches' Fingers
I made this to bring to a party where the hostess requested "finger foods" - ha, ha! I stuck a thin stick pretzel in the middle to simulate a "bone." I added a dash of cinnamon to the dough, and they came out looking great, and tasting yummy as well. For presentation, I stuck them into a (store bought) chocolate cream pie. Then people could use a finger to scoop out the chocolatty cream filling. excellent! One thing to note: these were fairly time consuming in my world where I procrastinate, so allow yourself time (not just one hour) before the event to shape the fingers:)

Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle
I made a variation of this recipe and included some changes that other reviewers made. That said, it really isn't the same recipe, but trifle nonetheless. I didn't have time to make brownies or cake, so I bought chocolate and marble loaf cake, which is moist and cubes beautifully. Instead of pudding with the whipped cream (I used 2 cups real whipping cream), I folded in cream cheese (8 oz), 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup sugar, along with 2 cups mini marshmallows. My layers were: loaf cake squares, caramel sauce, crushed Heath Bars, whipped cream/cream cheese mixture, raspberry pie filling with some fresh raspberries thrown in to add some tartness to all that sugar! I brought it to a potluck and it was gone before my husband could taste it! My daughter and her friends said it was awesome. I think this is one recipe where you can get creative and still have it come out tasty.

Blissful Rosemary Chicken
This was great! I browned the chicken first as others recommended and used bamboo skewers to hold chicken together (rosemary inside.) Very moist and flavorful with the proscuitto & fontina! One thing I'll do different next time is reduce the amount of pepper. Family loved it -- even chicken-hating daughter :)
